Supports in Third Level
There is a wide range of supports available to you in third level and it varies from each institution. Supports such as;
An ISL/English interpreter during lectures to relay information
Notetaker to take notes of the important points of what is being said during lectures
Speedtext is a full transcript of what is being said in lectures
Induction Loop System in the lecture halls
Examination Accommodations such as extra time, separate rooms, spelling and grammar waiver etc…
How Do I Apply?
To avail of these supports, you must register with your Access Officer or Disability Officer in your college/university. If you already done so in your CAO application form, then this is not necessary and you will be contacted by the Disability Office upon your entry into college.
You can also go along to the DS3 (Deaf Support in Third Level) summer school where you can prepare and learn all the information you need before going to college.
